Popped over to the (bike)shop and the only Accelerade they had was Lemon Lime and I thought, "how bad can it be..." they also no longer sell GUs, just every other thing. Stocked up on the chocolate HammerGel and it was fine. The Lemon-Lime Accelerade was nasty, just nasty. The smell was pretty obnoxious-very sea weedy smelling, total barf out on the smell, but the taste was much more tolerable. I'll check the link, thanks.
i think the chocolate hammer gel might have caffeine in it, not sure, maybe i'm confusing it with espresso? Anyway, i read some lengthy cycling messageboard and the majority of guys on there prefered Hammer Gel by a oretty good majority. Yeah, i know , they are cyclists and not skaters, but hay, just becuase they took one wrong turn in life doesn;t disqualify everything they think...

Accelearde - tried the fruit punch once for variety and it was too sweet. the Orange is my hands down favorite. I get the 56 serving size for about $22 per container, no shipping, no tax, delivered to my door, just add water.

This stuff gets me so fueled up, i feel like i could skate between major metropilitan centers along the southeastern seaboard.
